    Wow, Pulaski and Summertown folks. TBN is getting close. Hey guys I guess I am a neighbor too. I am in Lawrence Co. about 8mi out of Summertown toward Henryville. I am going to vote for a round bale feeding area as far as the twine grid goes. There could of even been a round bale unroller in use.

    The square foot garden bed picture that bcp posted reminds me of a tobacco plant bed which would be common around here but I can't associate the twine grid to it.

    OP, we are pretty close for Internet "neighbors". I'm in Giles but over near I65.

    I'm still baffled on the grid pattern. Any chance you could post a picture of it?

    I spent the evening trying to reclaim about a half acre grown up in locust trees. Using the chain saw because the darn things don't push out well with the fel. I still have 20 or so to go.

    Sorry, the only pic that I could provide would be one showing a pile of baling twine ready to be bagged up. If I come across any more buried twine I'll take a pic and post it.

    My thoughts exactly. Could be related to crop circles.

    Possibly they kept moving the bale feeder which would explain the large area.

    Ok .... were there ever greenhouses set up there? Could these be some of the strings used to tie up cucumber plants or something along those lines?

    Would it help get the last of it removed, by going over the area with a deep ripper or the rippers on a box blade?

    I saw something similar once. The demolition contractor on a school replacement used a deep ripper to tear sprinkler pipe out of the huge lawns. This worked great - until he ripped out a pressurized undocumented water main that came into the campus from the street. That ripped a hole in the big water main in the street. Huge mess! Your story reminded me of seeing that.
